Balloon garland is all the rage right now and it’s such a stunning statement piece of party decor that is sure to get everyone’s attention. The one thing I love about this party statement is that it costs no more than $10 for all of the supplies and most of the supplies are probably laying around in your home. But if not, head to your local dollar store and pick up a few packs of balloons and a roll of string to get started!
What you will need:
- 60-72 balloons in various colors
- 15 feet of string to match balloon colors
- Thumbtacks for attaching garland to wall
- Knot tying trick (optional)
- Air pump (optional)
Pin it for later!
Step One: Tie the loops
You will need about 60 or more balloons in various colors and a 15 foot piece of string or yarn. Start by tying a loop on each end of your string which will be used later to hang the garland with a thumbtack.
Step Two: Pair the balloons
Next grab two balloons and tie the ends together. This is going to be the bulk of the project. Continue tying pairs of balloons together until you have 30 or more pairs.
Step Three: Make clusters of balloons
Form clusters of balloons by tying two pairs together. Each cluster will consist of 4 or more balloons depending on how thick you want your garland to be.
Step Four: Hang clusters
Lastly, tie each cluster of balloons to the 15 foot string until all clusters are tied in a row. Slide the clusters together to reduce gaps and make the string less visible. Finally, hang your garland and enjoy!
